    Best time to visit is on a clear Autumn day, when the leaves are all out. Nice spot for a picnic. If you want a good workout then walk from bottom gate to top gate. Steep walk. Nice views at top, whic...  more »

    Set up in the Adelaide Hills just down from the summit of Mount Lofty, these Gardens are well worth a visit. There are several access points, most people chose either the upper or lower car parks. The...  more »

  • This place is a must see. My kids and i absolutely love it here. The views, the gardens, the colour and the atmosphere. No matter what time of day or year, you will absoluetly love this place. It's relaxing and you can bring a picnic and spend a few hours here.
  • Beautiful in Autumn! Lovely place to have a picnic with loved ones and kids love sliding down the hill. Beautiful walks but beware some trails can be closed due to rain with only minimal signage.
  • Great place for a leisurely walk. Stunning colours during autumn. Walking tracks are well maintained. Plenty of parking available. Don't forget your camera.
  • This is a good place to relax and walk. Clean, well looked after, beautiful scenery. The only drawback is that there is certainly not enough parking places. It also does not have a constantly working cafe so it is better to bring your own food and drinks.
  • One of the most beautiful spots in Adelaide, especially in autumn and spring. Many paths climb up and down. Park in the upper carpark for a walk down the gully, or the lower carpark for the lake.

Where to stay in Adelaide

Most budget-friendly rooms in Adelaide cluster in the central business district, with plenty of backpacker accommodations located near the city's central bus station. Adelaide also boasts an outstanding public transport system, which makes staying outside the central areas a viable and economical option for sightseers. Look for quiet and affordable rooms in North Adelaide, a leafy neighborhood filled with an eclectic mix of shopping and dining options. Book early for visits during peak season, and expect higher prices on the weekends and during school holidays.
